I am a bit of a germ-a-phone (at times!) and when we moved to our new flat (yes 2 years ago) I picked up these toilet wipes and haven't looked back since.
I picked these up again in sainsburys today for £1.50 and the pack contains 40 wipes (thats 3.75p per wipe! Not bad!). I don't use them everyday, so a pack generally lasts me about 2 months or so, which I think is quite good value for money considering what they do!
These toilet wipes come in a easily resealable orange pack, and are for wiping around the rim of the toilet to kill toilet germs such as E.coli, salmonella (what would that be doing fermenting on my toilet seat I wonder?!) and listeria. To be fair, I've no idea whether or not they are 100% effective at killing bacteria as they do not say the usual statistic of "kills 99.9% bacteria" but I tend to have peace of mind just knowing that I've used it.
I tend to use these wipes perhaps if I've had friends over (it's so rude I know! But i can't help it!) or if my little one has had an accident With the potty and not all the waste has landed directly into the toilet bowl. The wipes are also good for giving a handy wipe down on the toilet lid, handle and cistern so from time to time I give a quick once over on those areas to ensure my bathroom is nice and clean!
The predominant thing I like about these wipes is that they are flushable! After usage just pop them in the loo and with a quick flush they disappear, hassle free! The orange scent is quite refreshing to have in the bathroom as it smells nice and clean, but wish to add these wipes also come in citrus in a yellow packet which are just as lovely for those who may find the orange a tad overbearing.
As these wipes are reminiscent of other wipes I'd advise to keep them out the reach of little monsters! Mine likes to take out her baby wipes and rub them all over her face so I ensure that they are well out of her grasp in the bathroom! In addition the wipes are quite thin but do not rip easily and are strong enough and durable to give a good rub with some elbow grease and not fall apart in the palm of my hand!
Overall I love these wipes and would definitely recommend!
I'm all for quick and easy cleaning as long as it's still effective, so when I saw these I picked a pack up to try. They did just what I'd wanted and expected, so I'll be buying them again.
Parozone is a popular brand in bathroom cleaning and I trust their products to be effective. Their Toilet Wipes, a Jeyes product (and again, a reputable name), come in an almost neon orange packet with yellow detailing at the top and bottom, so they stand out on the shelf fairly well. The brand is clearly recognisable on the front label along with a picture of, you guessed it, a toilet (just in case you weren't sure what Toilet Wipes were used for). The labels tell us this 'kills toilet germs' so the product is fairly self-explanatory. The orange packaging is in line with the fragrance of the wipes, which is, strangely enough, orange!
These claim to kill germs including Listeria, Salmonella and E.Coli, which is good to know and is important when it comes to a bathroom. To use, open the pack by peeling back the re-sealable label and pull out a wipe. Use this to wipe over toilet surfaces as you see fit, which can include the lid, cistern, seat and handle. Then when you're done, simply flush it away. It does note that no more than 3 wipes should be flushed each time. When finished, reseal the packet a bit like you would with make-up remover wipes to prevent them drying out.
I find these very easy to use by just wiping around the toilet and the fact that they can be flushed makes it safer in terms of not transferring germs anywhere else. It makes the job quick and painless, and they're good for getting to harder to reach places and getting rid of germs or dust etc where you may not normally clean, such as behind the toilet seat and in nooks and crannies underneath it.
The wipes are white and of a decent size to clean around the toilet. They have a very distinctive orange scent which I quite like because they're not what I usually associate with such products, as the scent can often be quite disinfectant-like. They're pleasant enough to uplift and refresh the bathroom but they're not overpowering at all.
I bought mine as a '25% extra free pack' which provided 50 wipes for the price of 40. It depends on how often you use them of course, but if you use a wipe or two each week then they're reasonable value for money because they do the job well. They're very easy to use and dispose of, so their practical aspects get a thumbs up from me. They leave the toilet looking clean and seeming refreshed, so I'd definitely buy again.
Pack of 40 wipes sells for around £1.50 (Tesco). Also available in other scents, such as Citrus.
